We went there early and were pretty much the first one there with one other family. That‘s when it was just great. Later during the day, cruise ship passengers arrived and the peach and quite was over. The beach and snorkeling however was beautiful.

This (Bonaire) is a magnificant Carribbean Island. It is nice and tropical. I believe it is a Dutch Island. The inhabinents are very respectful and love tourests.

Absolutely beautiful for snorkeling. Make sure you ask the water taxi to drop you off before you get to the beach and swim along the coral reef. Very clear water, lots of gorgeous fish and sea turtles.

Yes, we never pre-booked. Just show up about half hour before the taxi leaves (one day it was very crowded).
